Per capita medical radiation doses have been climbing rapidly in recent years, and while this increase is associated with a favorable benefit to risk ratio, there remains great opportunity for reducing individual patient doses. This guidance will help federal health care facilities reduce patient doses without compromising patient care. It is hoped that private sector faciliti
